streaming an HD movie off of a USB stick or something similar). The other USB port is plugged into a Gridseed 5-chip device and is running in dual mining mode (with a modified cpuminer handling the scrypt mining and a modified cgminer handling the BTC). This is it, you should have the miner running both SHA-256 (BTC) and Scrypt (LTC) mining withe the two software miners and the total power consumption should be about 60W. Yes, I can tell by your articles how you guys hold a high standard of quality, so quite understood. You need to download a special modified version of cpuminer for Scrypt (LTC) mining and a modified version of cgminer for SHA-256 (BTC) mining. admin Thin King, you cannot run Windows on RPi, only Linux. Louie Thank you for your time, I posted images of before and after on Bitcointalk forum link below. Fan off when it’s cool, fan on when it’s hot – takes no energy, takes no interfacing with a microcontroller, takes no fancy control software. Is it still possible to mine using these devices. 1:1 --dual \Louie I have the red finned unit, and when I first plugged it into my pc(Win7/64bit) windows auto detected STM32 and assigned it a com port which i could change later.
Thanks to your articles, I know to have an electronically inclined friend help take it apart and check the wiring touching the chips, etc. Anyhow, just confirming if I should expect this to be a Windows only page, and to say thanks for the great reviews on this product. Currently running cgminer for scrypt-mining only. (2) passive normally open bimetal switch <- Has anyone done this. Before I use Zadig you will see STM Virtual port under com ports with a port number assigned, after I use Zadig, STM Virtual com port falls under USB Devices with no com port assigned and no way to assign one. Running for more than 2 hours already the ASIC in fanless mode mining Scrypt has shown that it can do just fine with passive cooling. Also I accidentally did a replace driver on my keyboard and can no longer use the damn thing, how can i reverse this. I know minepeon is ArchLinux, but if this is a Debian/Ubuntu release I might start working on a version that supports a touchscreen or LCD monitor. Louie Many baby steps later I am at a wall, I have both programs seeing the miner, however with this setup CPUminer is not solving any hashes as I linked to a screengrab in my pevious post gridseed asic miner for litecoin. And surprise, surprise the total power usage without the fan gets down to just about 5-6W overclocked to 850 MHz, but what about cooling without a fan.
The fact that the Gridseed 5-chip actually uses virtual COM ports is ideal gridseed asic miner for litecoin. So with those three processes running I’m able to use the dual-mining capabilities of the Gridseed 5-chip device and still use my older ASIC miner. In your setup did it remove the device from having a comport under windows.Augur.. I also have a raspberri pi 3 and right now don’t even know what types of coins I’m able to mine with it. I tried lowering clock freq, running just cpuminer stand alone still the same results detects miner, even has new work dispatched to miner but never solves a hash, meanwhile the sha256 side is moving right along. Snaps Jimmy Mar 12th, 2014 16:34 This question might already have been answered, but it was difficult to find in the post. I did not see anything else come up to indicate there was a second com port. .Status.PIVX. Populous.
